I.D. These 3 Brass Era Cars

Postby MochetVelo » Mon Apr 16, 2018 4:55 pm

I got this plaque today. It appears to be enamel on copper. The cars look c1905 and quite detailed, including license plates. Can anyone identify them?

The first one looks like a stylized version of an early Rolls Royce, maybe a 1904-1906 10hp, which may explain the license plate of HP-10. As far as the other cars I don't see any noticeable marques, only brand that came to mind with HXF would maybe he a Hotchkiss which was a French car --> HXF... but thats purely a hypothetical based on the license plate. What I know from early Hotchkiss, they seemed to have round radiators.
